This set of eight kid-friendly, gator-themed posters feature alligators holding a school supply item with a matching direction word below. These direction word posters, or anchors, can help even the youngest learners work more independently and experience greater success. Basic direction word posters include: WRITE, GLUE, READ, COLOR, DRAW and CUT. Print, laminate and trim these posters to create an attractive wall reference or select the specific direction cards to display that match the task students are expected to complete. For example, if students are expected to complete a worksheet that requires them to read a set of sentences and write the missing word that best completes each one, then display the READ and WRITE posters only. The number cards “1” and “2” can be displayed with the posters to visually remind students what to do and the order in which to do them. A set of six step number cards are included along with an example display set up. This resource ends with a student mini-book called “My Book of Directions”. Your young learners will have fun making their own book of directions illustrated with adorable gators holding different school supplies.
